Wonderful location, big pool

BackPacker782208 (Evergreen, Colorado) on Jun 09, 2022

We loved this hotel. We had 2 rooms at the back of one of the long buildings with our car parked right outside our window. Pool was large. Grounds very clean. Beds were comfortable. Great location with easy access to beaches. This hotel met all of our needs at a reasonable price.

Best pool

pamelag531 on May 27, 2022

Loved it! Hotel staff was friendly and accommodating providing a room that was ideally situated for us with our boxes of items we needed to remove while our condo complex was tented. The pool is perfect, we enjoyed the garden setting and instead of a microwave in the room I went to a room by the lobby well named Munchies in the middle of the night and let my family sleep. We enjoyed it so much we extended an extra day. I plan to book rooms here for our relatives who love to visit us in San Diego! Great value, we enjoyed a quiet stay in very comfortable beds!

Rust Everywhere

509annettet (San Rafael, California) on Oct 05, 2021

I was surprised as to how rundown this hotel is. Coming from the San Francisco Bay Area thought the Handlery name meant quality. Rust on bathroom fixtures and rusty hand railings were all visible. Has any regular maintenance been done at this property?

DO NOT GO HERE!! Beware of bugs!!!

The hotel is crawling with roaches and fruit flies… they’re everywhere! Also, management was horrible upon bringing this up to them. Absolutely gross hotel under the disguise of somewhere actually decent. Travelers beware!
